a perforated my lung the most interesting fact here is that they came for troops and nato have been trying to convince everybody that they only used rubber bullets and tear gas grenades against the angry mob to pacify them but doctors and local hospitals told us that they those people who were injured in those clashes were delivered to hospitals carrying gunshot wounds to the room. seven men in heavy condition gunshot wounds fractures and bruises they were not from rubber bullets but a single of them had a rubber hold those wounds were caused by a regular bullet which we extracted from their bodies. now the serbs may have lost one of their checkpoints but they have lots more around the area we've counted more than ten different checkpoints the determination of the sort of people is very strong now to show that they do not want to be part of the cost of

a republic. they are telling us to leave but we have no way to leave this is because constable is our land our home and our life it seems that we are on our own now and we will stand our ground. there has been very harsh international response on the actions of this week here in kosovo with the united states accusing the course of his service of provoking violence and the russian foreign ministry expressing deepest concerns over the situation here saying that this may seem as a small as a minor border crossing dispute but in reality this could destabilize the situation in the whole region. due to their recent actions in the kosovo standoff nato peacekeepers have lost their impartiality that is according to belgrade based political analyst alexander part which they've totally and openly stepped out of the un mandate and they're really really now just like during the one nine hundred ninety nine during the bombing when there was the air force for the albanian
6:05 pm
separatists there now they're infantry so this is what we have this is a clear breach of the u.n. charter and of resolution twelve forty four it's totally destroyed their standing as any sort of mediator. and i don't know how they are going to reclaim it the only way they would be able to reclaim their role would be actually. encourage things to go back to the way they were before but they've made it clear that they're not going to do that so in the absence of that everyone is just going to look at nato here as being firmly on the albanian side on the side of what serbia considers to be successful in us so we don't really have a mediator here anymore and that's even more dangerous parties alexei yoshi ascii is in kosovo for us and we'll be bringing you updates as and when they happen. meanwhile you can head to our teaser free video page to get the freshest pictures

6:07 pm
links with terrorist cells there is evidence he did going back to the very beginning that the eastern part of libya was a hotbed of islamic radicalism some of these people have been true. one of the leaders who was killed recently a cheer was a libyan and he came from this general area and now we know that one of the leaders of the rebel forces that took tripoli who. was also considered very close to al qaeda and was indeed detained by the united states for some time before he was allowed to go free so it appears that the people with the guns on the side of the libyan rebels and now the government are people who have this very mixed background and it's not clear how the south when you get down to the point of once the country under the control this is force which side of this force will will be predominant. revolutionary forces say they have surrounded the city of seer

a stronghold thousands of people have been fleeing the besieged city driven from their homes by fierce fighting and a lack of essential the chairman of the national transitional council says his forces have called a two day truce to let civilians leave but heavy rocket and mortar fire continued anyway meanwhile aid workers from the international committee of the red cross have brought medical supplies to the city rob lyons deputy editor of the independent online magazine spiked says nato intervention in libya has turned things from bad to worse. and this is the very small consequence of the think things that i got rolling back in february the kind of half hearted intervention was always going to end up with last stand by gadhafi forces to fight is this is the kind of law that we expected in tripoli a few weeks ago that never happened and clearly there's a lot in this thing about the role of the international community no could be making things worse not simply by bombarding the city boy actually having made such
6:09 pm
a fuss about civilians not being a lot for hearts even though they clearly have the book i say that it's given because duffy forces a real incentive to keep keep the civilians in the city probably well i'm sure many of them would like to get out of there no. effect simply because we're trying to shield by which the they can they can stay there for a high on for a bit longer and as the libyan conflict shows no sign of winning many feel it is following in the footsteps of another nato led military intervention the afghan war coming up we asked new yorkers if they think the decade long of fighting in afghanistan has brought any results. i don't see a goal and i don't really see anything changing even if we stay there another hundred years or a war there for that long it better be for something that we better get something out of it and that's going to happen now. more opinions on the afghan war from the big apple in just a few minutes. also ahead
